Canon U.S.A. Enhances Enterprise Workflow with uniFLOW v5.2 Print and Scan
MELVILLE, N.Y. -- May 15, 2013
Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced the
release of uniFLOW v5.2 print and scan management software, offering improved
installation and usability, fully integrated print room management, and
enhanced mobile and cloud printing capabilities, including support for Google
Canon’s exclusive uniFLOW software provides businesses the ability to
consolidate enterprise output management into a single, unified platform for
device management, secure printing, document routing and accounting, mobile
solutions and cloud capabilities. uniFLOW v5.2 adds production printing
modules that enable organizations to manage and utilize their corporate
reprographic departments (CRD) in conjunction with their office print and scan
infrastructure from one platform.
“More than 1,000 improvements were made to the uniFLOW platform based on
customer feedback and real-world implementations,” said Sam Yoshida, vice
president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group,
Canon U.S.A. “By incorporating print management, scanning workflow, mobile
printing and CRD processes into one solution, uniFLOW v5.2 may help customers
save on the additional training, IT infrastructure, and support costs that
would likely be needed if those functions were implemented separately.”
New features and benefits of uniFLOW v5.2 include:
*Improved Usability: End-users of uniFLOW will now see a more intuitive
interface, featuring a streamlined platform that allows IT administrators
to more easily configure the system through wizards without having to rely
on additional support. The new Quick Start screen will take the installer,
step-by-step, through the entire configuration process, simplifying setup
of even the most complicated workflows.
*New Print Room/CRD Integration: With new print room management features,
uniFLOW v5.2 provides a complete, single platform solution to help
organizations manage both their office print and scan infrastructure and
their in-house print room operations. These features allow operators to
manage their entire print room, controlling tasks that range from job
submission to intake. Print volume can be more effectively managed by
automatically rerouting large print jobs from office multifunction devices
to a central print room. Additionally, integration with the optional Océ
PRISMAprepare document preparation software can help print room operators
streamline the make-ready process.
*Enhanced Mobile/Cloud Support: uniFLOW’s existing mobile printing
functionality has been further improved by providing new ways for mobile
users to submit print jobs from their devices. uniFLOW 5.2 now includes
support for the Google Cloud Print service, allowing customers who have
purchased Google Chromebook PCs to print securely and have their jobs
accounted for in the same way as other Windows or Mac users. Jobs can be
submitted to Google Cloud Print from any PC running Google Chrome™ as well
as Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.
*Enhanced Scanning Functionality: Scanning has been an integral part of
uniFLOW since version 5.0, and with uniFLOW v5.2, many improvements have
been implemented based on customer feedback. In this release the
SharePoint connection has been greatly improved, and the capability to
browse and scan into any system that supports the WebDAV protocol, which
is used by many document management systems, has been added.
uniFLOW v5.2 is available through Canon Authorized Dealers and Canon Solutions
America. For more information please visit www.usa.canon.com/software.
